The Boat in the Moat restaurant near Sebring Florida is not just a restaurant, but part of a larger whole of the Solomon’s Castle attraction.
We visited to tour the castle recently, and then took the opportunity of having a lunch at this on-site restaurant. It is part of the Solomon’s Castle property, yet there is no entry fee required to eat at the restaurant in the Solomon’s Castle complex.
Evidently many folks come to the Boat in the Moat Restaurant for the pleasant backwoods-Florida drive to get there and then the quality and value found in the meals. The wander around the property outside of the castle is enjoyable as well. We’ll do both again, I assure you.
The photo deliberately does not show a picture of the Boat in the Moat itself though you can see the hawser “mooring” the craft. That boat is worth the drive, just to have a look at it, and cross through it to get to the patio shown above. It’s a must do for visitors to Sebring.
Eat in the boat, eat on the patio (easy-listening live music while we were there) or eat in the Lighthouse. You can see what that’s all about when you go.
Meals are ample and well priced. All of our selections were well cooked and flavored, though the potatoes on one plate were on the coolish (not cold) side, and care might be better taken by the kitchen to ensure that if the portion is supposed to be hot, it should be delivered thus.
Service was amazingly fast.
Caution, if you are of light meals, maybe consider sharing a main dish. Lots there for two in my opinion (we shared) and found that amount to be ample.
Take in the Boat in the Moat restaurant when you can, about 50 miles from Sebring.
